Meetings will consist of one or two presentations on topics of interest to our members and a tour of the host facility.

We are looking for members interested in hosting a meeting – this is a great opportunity to showcase your facility.

If your operation is too small to host the meeting then we will arrange for a nearby location to conduct the meeting.

We would also like to hear any ideas which you may have as to topics you would like to see dealt with in our presentations.
Invitations to events will be sent out to members and those on our SODA mailing list, as details are finalized.
